Literally the only thing we like about the cold weather at this point. #nomoresnow ❄️
There is nothing better than coming home to a space you love. My gray lady kitty, Ishmael, loves to show off her home. Erick and I collect Broadway posters signed by full Original Broadway casts. We also recently commissioned an artist to create these Renaissance portraits of Ish and Moritz! What makes your home cozy? #interiordesign #apartment #apartmenttherapy #broadway #broadwaybaby #broadwayshows #theater #musicals #musicaltheater #originalbroadwaycast #renaissance #renaissanceart #catart #cat #cats #interiordesign #wallpaper #newyork #newyorkcity #tortitude #tortoiseshellcat #callmeishmael

Started this hunt on 11/28/17 and FINALLY caught the white whale today! Over a month of soft resetting and it shows up in the snow. #callmeishmael #ShinyHunting #pokemon #shinypokemon

"
The White Whale swam before him as the monomaniac incarnation of all those malicious agencies which some deep men feel eating in them, till they are left living on with half a heart and half a lung. [. . .] All that most maddens and torments; all that stirs up the lees of things; all truth with malice in it; all that cracks the sinews and cakes the brain; all the subtle demonisms of life and thought; all evil, to crazy Ahab, were visibly personified, and made practically assailable in Moby Dick. He piled upon the whale’s white hump the sum of all the general rage and hate felt by his whole race from Adam down; and then, as if his chest had been a mortar, he burst his hot heart’s shell upon it." .
Herman Melville, Moby Dick .

📚 #spicynovelsjan18 challenge, day 17: Rivals

This leather bound edition by @easton_press is of their collectors's editions: THE 100 GREATEST BOOKS EVER WRITTEN

It is one of the finest books I own. I thought Moby Dick a perfect fit for the photo prompt, for there is no greater rival than oneself, always in conflict with the great whale of evil, insecurities, and madness that swims in our inner depths of the mind. .
.

Thanks to @novelscript and @spicypages for this challenge. I became so enamoured with the book in preparation for today's post that I am now beckoned to read this tale again. I already appreciate it more than when I read it all those years ago in school.

Here’s a true custom job. How many of these have you built @menatone ? And do you mind if I post the work of art that is inside? #guitareffects #guitarpedals #effectpedals #knowyourtone #guitar #custombuild #effectsrevealed #whitewhale #callmeishmael

Ishmael and I are spending this morning, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, reflecting on how far we have come as a nation, but how far we still have to go. I miss Obama every day, and I’m so happy that Pete Souza published this gorgeous collection of official photographs of him. So much dignity, poise, compassion and grace. How are you honoring the important legacy of MLK today? #blackhistory #blacklivesmatter #obama #barackobama #mrpresident #44 #bookstagram #book #books #booksofinstagram #bookworm #booknerd #historyteacher #teacherlife #hygge #coffee #hisonly #cat #catsofinstagram #tortoiseshellcat #tortitude #callmeishmael #mlk #mlkweekend

I am kind of paranoid in reverse. I suspect people of plotting to make me happy. #jdsalinger .
